In a combined effort between the Rusk County Sheriff's Office and the Baytown Police Department, Jarrett Murray was arrested on Thursday in connection with the death of Joseph Michael Douglas in 2006.
Douglas' body was found in a rural area in Rusk County on May 2.
Information uncovered during the investigation led officers to believe that Murray often talked about Douglas' murder.
Investigators request that anyone with information relating to the case should call Chief Deputy Helton at 903-657-3581 ext. 210 or contact Rusk County Crime Stoppers at 905-655-TIPS.
